Australian Chef Jason Roberts Joins 'Chew' Crew

The already overpopulated food talk show gets a new correspondent

ABC's kitchen talk show The Chew has hired another chef to join the already overcrowded team. Aussie chef Jason Roberts has signed on as a correspondent, joining Mario Batali, Carla Hall, Michael Symon, Clinton Kelly, and Daphne Oz on the daytime show.

Luckily, Roberts won't be in the kitchen all the time. According to a press release, "As a correspondent, he will travel and share food-related stories from around the country. He will also appear in-studio on occasion." So, he gets to be Anthony Bourdain while everyone else is chatting about healthy eating and cooking in the kitchen.

Check out what Roberts is like on camera here. He seems like a laid-back surfer charmer, which means he'll get along great with the rest of the smiley team.

For what it's worth, Jason Roberts appears to be merely replacing Danny Boone. You also forgot to mention Evette Rios, who also serves as a correspondent for The Chew.
